### Determinants of octonionic hermitian matrices

For quaternionic hermitian matrices (i.e. quaternionic square matrices $(a_{ij})$ satisfying
$a_{ji}=\bar a_{ij}$) there is a nice notion of (Moore) determinant which can be defined as follows.
...

### Reference request: The relationship between norm and trace forms on an Albert algebra

I am interested in either a nice reference, or some clarification.
Overview: I am considering $J_3(\mathbb{O})$, the Jordan algebra of $3\times 3$ self adjoint octonionic matrices. This algebra is a ...

### Is the generated subalgebra of a subset of pairwise operator-commuting element in a JB-algebra associative?

In a Jordan algebra elements $a$ and $b$ are said to operator-commute, whenever $a \circ (b \circ x) = b \circ (a \circ x)$ for every other element $x$. (That is: $T_aT_b = T_bT_a$, writing $T_x(y) = ...

### Is there a system of quasigroup equations implying non-associativity?

I have read that if 4 quasigroup operations, $\cdot,\circ,\star,\square$, on a set $S$ respect the following equation:
$$x\cdot (y\circ z) = (x \star y) \square z$$
for all $x,y,z\in S$, then all 4 ...

### A question about index of the commutant in a Moufang loop

Let $M$ be a non-commutative Moufang loop and $C(M)$ be its commutant. I can prove that the index of $C(M)$ in $M$, $|M:C(M)|$, is greater than or equal to 4. Also, I can show that $|M:Z(M)|\geq 4$, ...
